Laguna Phuket’s “Run Paradise” Marathon Rocks with New Theme Song

Media Release
26-Apr-2013

This year’s Laguna Phuket International Marathon is rocking its thousands of runners and fans around the world with a specially-commissioned “Run Paradise” theme song.

The upbeat rock anthem was composed by Phuket-based musicians Gary Crause and Rob Cooke at Gary’s Legend Music Studios.

It celebrates the event’s unique blend of enthusiasm for running and community fund-raising on the paradise tropical island – all to an inspiring up-tempo beat.

The new song can be heard on YouTube where it has been posted with a video of images from previous Laguna marathons at: http://youtu.be/d9XSG9xM4Hw

Thousands of runners from across the globe will “Run Paradise” in the eighth edition of the annual event on Sunday, 9 June, to re-affirm its status as Asia’s most popular family-friendly destination marathon.

As well as the full 42k marathon there’s a 21.1km half marathon, 10.5km run, a 91.5FM 5km community walk and a 2km children’s race. Runners and spectators alike can join fund-raising for the Laguna Phuket Foundation, which supports a number of community and schools charity initiatives.

“Run Paradise” is an apt description, with runners of all ages and abilities on a mainly flat course that takes in rubber and pineapple plantations, beach views, local villages and the lagoons of Laguna Phuket - all in a family-friendly carnival atmosphere.   

The new song will be performed live at the runners’ Pasta Party on the eve of the marathon by popular Phuket teen band The Legends of Siam.

Online marathon registration is available at www.phuketmarathon.com with special deals at Laguna Phuket hotels also on the website.

LAGUNA TOURS TESTIMONIALS

We had a really enjoyable day. Both the guide, Anon, and the driver, Ice, were really friendly and helpful. They took care of us and informed us of landmarks during the drive. If we return to Phuket, or Thailand, then we would definitely use Laguna Tours again. Thank you very much.
